    A channel is installed in the Wii memory. You can run a forwarder that appears as a channel but runs from the USB.
    As you are a first time poster here is some info.
    Hi and welcome to WiiHacks wiimanwii

    If you need advice or help for anything Wii related you have joined the right site, whether its hard or soft modded.

    Don’t be shy, ask if you are stuck, just don’t expect other people to do all the work for you.

    Before you start anything, make sure you read the rules go over the tutorials, and most importantly, search before asking questions.

    Make sure you post in the correct areas of the forums.

    If you are starting from scratch, new 3.1-4.1 written by Dogeggs

    If you already have Homebrew, upgrade to 4.1 written by Dogeggs

    Don’t update to 4.2, but if you are already on 4.2, complete 4.2 guide written by Messie

    I hope you have a great time here at WiiHacks, and increase your knowledge of all things Wii.

    Hi WiiJohn and others,
    would it be possible to explain the way how to create such forwarder?
    Or paste some links where it's already written.
    Thanks

    No I meant ISO's of games. The Photo channel can be installed from the shop channel, there is a wad avialable for the shop channel, I've never seen one for the photo channel. Once installed it runs from Wii memory, no SD card is required.

    John, you seem not to understand wiimanwii's and my question...so I'll try to explain it:
    I use my HDD to play ISO games via Wiiflow (USBLoader,...). The disc is 500 GB. Therefore I decided to split it to 100 GB WBFS, 32 GB FAT, cca 370 GB NTFS.
    The NTFS partition is where I store different data, such as movies, documents and photos. I have around 100 GB of my own photos in different formats.
    And I would be very happy if there could be any way to use Photo Channel to browse my photos.
    = SD card in not enough, I'd like to find a way how to unlock or create an USB option for Photo Channel.

    Sorry for being dim. No I don't know of anything to do that. You might try the Home brew browser, I know there is a Wii explorer there.

    Good luck
